Enthusiasts know and love the Aston Martin Vantage, but it's a bit of a curiosity. The smallest car in the company's catalog can be had with its smallest engine in the V8 Vantage, or its largest in the V12 Vantage. But now Aston has bridged the gap with the new V8 Vantage S.
Its 4.7-liter V8 engine has been tuned up to 430 horsepower, mated to a seven-speed sequential transmission. The steering has also been returned, the brakes upgraded and the aerodynamics optimized with new vents and carbon fiber front splitter. As with the existing V8 Vantage but unlike the V12 model, the V8 Vantage S can be had in either coupe or roadster body-styles.
